Congratulations to Alex Bendiken, Slashdot Redesign Winner!

I'm happy to congratulate my work colleague, Alex Bendiken, for his success in winning the Slashdot Redesign contest. 20060530-slashdot-redesign.jpgAlex spent 48 hours straight, working on his initial entry and made it through 200+ entries to land in the top 3. Yesterday, Slashdot announced the winner — Alex! Here's Alex's official acceptance blog post.

I think Alex's "re-alignment" of Slashdot makes sense, because it captures the spirit of the original design, and color scheme, while improving on the flow, placement and function, as well as the visual design.

Congratulations are in order for Alex, along with that sweet, fully-loaded 17" MacBook Pro he receives for his hard work. Nice work!
